I started to try to fix my own tv. The picture wasn't coming in clear, so i looked into the color lamps. The green and blue looked dirty, so i took them apart to get the dust out. when i took the lens off, a whole lot of oil came out. I cleaned all of the dirt looking stuff out. My question is , what kind of oil do i put back and how full?

Re: magnavox 60'' rear projection screen tv
That oil is glycol and is a coolant for the tube. Hope you didn't get the oil on the circuits because it is conductive and the tv will not operate with the oil on it. Must be completely full. Can be bought a electronic parts distributors or a tv shop could order you a bottle. Hope you just removed one tube only. Make sure you seal it back good

sounds like a Phillips or magnavox that has bad CRT coolant which needs replacement. If so you can get the Phillips CRT coolant repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com it comes with instructions and the coolant for all three CRts,
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.
Common Symptoms include....
Screen looks 3D
Colors don't line up
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed or warped.
TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.
the coolant in the blue and green crts has congealed which is causing the red tube to become dominate. The coolant can be changed at home. You can get the phillips coolant replacement kit at the following link which contains the coolant and the CD with instructions. http://www.tvrepairworld.com/
That model is famous for having bacterial contamination in the CRT coolant causeing halos, and dim pictures with bad overall color issues. You can look into the lens of the CRTs when the set is laying and if the coolant looks cloudy or has any growth there you will notice it right away, and changing the coolant will restore color, clarity and brightness.
update the firmware/software if possible. my 60" has a USB slot on the right side. also you can download the manual from phillips http://www.support.philips.com/support/html/index_us_en.html#../~scripts/xsltransform.asp?url=http://www.sms.philips.com/catalogue/list?sid=SMS||type=CONSUMER||locale=us_en||mode=cats||item=TV_GR&xsl=subcatalog.xsl
my phillips 60PP9200D/37
I had the exact same problem. The screen would shrink then expand. After thrity minutes it would correct itself. Then one day it just broke - no sound and no video. I searched these forums but did not find clear instructions on how to fix it. I gave up and called in a repair tech. He fixed my TV in less than 30 minutes. To help others like me I documented the fix and created a step by quide and repair kit to fix the problem. You can find it here. http://www.magnavoxhelp.com
